anton yelchin the greens are goneIn The Greens Are Gone, Keener plays “the matriarch of a dysfunctional family who’s pushed to her tipping point by the disappearance of her son (Yelchin).”  Shipka, Keough, and Starke play the daughters.  Deadline reports Pedersen begins filming this June in Massachusetts.

A Walk in the Woods is based on Bill Bryson‘s account of hiking the 2,000-mile Applachian trail that stretches from Georgia to Maine.  Redford and Nolte play two old friends who hike the trail.  According to Deadline, Steenburgen will play “an alluring motel proprietress named Jeannie who tempts Bryson (Redford) when he and Katz (Nolte) stop into her establishment for the night.”

Banks tweeted earlier today that Sagal will play Steinfeld’s mom in Pitch Perfect 2.  Steinfeld is poised to take over the franchise in any future sequels.  Filming begins this month for the May 15, 2015 release.
